First Bill & Ted Face The Music Poster Teases A Time-Travelling Adventure

Bill & Ted Face The Music hits theaters in August.


Before Speed, The Matrix, and John Wick, Keanu Reeves was the star of another fondly-remembered movie franchise. The 1989 time-travelling comedy Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and its 1991 sequel, Bogus Journey, featured Reeves and Alex Winter as a pair of time-travelling metalheads. The duo return to the series this year in Bill & Ted Face The Music. with the first poster now out in the public.

The poster doesn't include Reeves or Winter--or even the title of the film. But it does feature the iconic phone that Bill and Ted use to travel across the centuries, together with a very large reminder that the movie hits theaters this summer. Check it out below:

Bill & Ted Face the Music releases on August 21, 2020, and the movie is directed by Galaxy Quest's Dean Parisot. The film also stars Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine as Bill and Ted's daughters, William Sadler as Death, Hal Landon Jr. as Ted's dad Chief Logan, and Amy Stoch as Ted's stepmom Missy. Barry star Anthony Carrigan will appear as the film's main villain.

This poster follows the first images from the film, which were released in December. And while we've yet to see a trailer or any footage, Winter did appear as both the young and older version of Bill in Walmart's Super Bowl commercial last weekend.

The movie is written by franchise creators Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, and in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Matheson provided a few hints about to expect from the new movie. He explained that 30 years later, Bill and Ted and their band Wyld Stallyns are still struggling to create the world-saving music that they were told they would write in Excellent Adventure. "They were told when they were teenagers that they were going to save reality, and they've been working on it the whole time," Matheson said. "Now an emissary from the future comes and says, 'You've got to do it right now. We've got literally 80 minutes or all of reality will come to an end.'"
